Wahbi Khazri announces international retirement

Following Tunisia’s 2022 World Cup group stage exit, attacking midfield talisman Wahbi Khazri announced his retirement from international duty, in an interview with beIN Sports.

The 31-year-old and Montpellier man finishes his international career with 74 caps and 25 goals.

“It is the right moment: 5 AFCONs, 2 World Cups… I have made my family proud. The cycle is finished. Finishing against France, is one of the most wonderful moments of my career. I thank the Tunisian people. We had a great generation. I am happy to finish like this. I wish the best for my country that lives and breathes football. I am convinced that the best is still to come.”

Khazri scored on Wednesday vs France, allowing Tunisia to finish their World Cup with a victory.
